I'm 13 1/2 weeks pregnant and I have turned into The Ravinator! Sit back and marvel at what I have consumed today...SO (breathes in)

Muesli, yoghurt & fruit for breakfast (so far, so good, I hear you say)
Cheese & almonds at 10 am
Soup, sliced chicken, oatcakes, a family pack of mango, a packet of crisps and a yoghurt, for lunch
More oatcakes
Pasta, chicken, pesto, a whole tub of mozarella, olive oil & parmesan followed by a Magnum ice-cream chaser for dinner

(breathes out)

And it isn't even 7pm. What next? Steak, chips, a bottle of Malbec and a box of After Eights?!!

Bravo ruralninja you must have needed it, all of it grin

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 18:49:09

I could eat it all again I tell you! I'm sure this isn't normal..isn't the second trimester supposed to be some kind of serene episode of calm and energy? I'm starving and I'm knackered!

That isn't tons! And it's all healthy ish so don't worry, not takeaways and chippies,like me on a hangover Sunday! It sounds fine.

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 18:53:17

I feel like I have spent about 70% of my time awake today eating! I haven't got time!!!! I didn't get any work done at all....

horseonabeach Tue 21-May-13 18:54:39

Meh. That's nothing

Bunnylion Tue 21-May-13 18:54:53

Dinner? I'm sure you could squeeze in more than one meal before now and breakfast. grin

Someone brought donuts to work yesterday and I scoffed 5 of them probably indulged a little more than I should.

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 18:56:08

I so could!

peteypiranha Tue 21-May-13 18:56:16

That isnt much at all. Its very healthy imo. I ate considerably more than that when pregnant.

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 18:58:00

horseonabeach I do love my food, but I'm usually like a little robot with food - stomach like clockwork and more or less always the same amount - this is ridiculous...I am seriously considering a second magnum.... is there a helpline??!

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 18:58:36

Or maybe fish & chips... mmmm

willoughboobs Tue 21-May-13 19:01:25

I'm jealous ��

I'm 16 weeks and I want to eat and eat but I have 2 bites and I'm stuffed confused

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 19:13:13

Maybe that's what is next for me round the corner!

horseonabeach Tue 21-May-13 19:13:16

WOAH a second Magnum?! Stop the press! wink

You're being silly now. Just have the ice cream! You'll make up for it on other days and this is clearly unusual for you so just indulge.

Quodlibet Tue 21-May-13 19:16:31

I am like this too at 10 weeks. Could eat all day, only eating makes me so sleepy afterwards I can barely stay awake. I think the sleeping/inability to reach food from a prone position on the sofa is the only thing saving me from basically eating for 18 hrs/day.

RJM17 Tue 21-May-13 19:18:50

I am 14 weeks and could eat from the minute I wake up til the minute I go asleep if I was left. All I want to do is eat and sleep. Surely it has to get better soon lol x

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 19:29:47

You are right, I am being silly. I think I am secretly indulging myself not just in food, but in pregnancy chat because I had a bit of time of it getting diffed up in the first place! So I am LOVING the fact that I can sigh and wring my hands and say, woe is me, for I am pregnant and stuffing my face! RUMBLED!

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 19:30:47

Quodlibet you need to set up a bed by the fridge - tis obvious! And RJM17, you sound like you need a similar device!

pinkteapot Tue 21-May-13 19:31:19

i'm actually quite impressed with the healthiness of that list! but then... I did eat 4 mars ice creams in a row the other night, may not be the best judge... blush

NewChoos Tue 21-May-13 19:45:48

I want ice cream now.

Bunnylion Tue 21-May-13 19:53:18

I do like ice cream but I've recently rediscovered custard and am drinking it by the gallon smile

With you on this one, I'm 8 weeks and seem to be grazing all day long. Please don't mention fish and chips!!!

Ruralninja Tue 21-May-13 21:35:10

I went for about 8 gallons of water instead - it's a binary food or drink decision making process at the moment...

Quodlibet Tue 21-May-13 22:24:13

Ooohhh Rural, dangerous. You're going to be up in the night at least 50 times now weeing.
